Recipe: One Part Chocolate -> One Delicious Mug
To kick things off, we'd like to share a recipe we found. It is as delicious as any cake you've ever had, except the twist is it comes in a mug and takes but 5 minutes to make!
Dangerous Chocolate Cake-in-a-Mug
1 - coffee mug (microwave-safe)
4 T. - cake flour (plain, not self-rising)
4 T. - sugar
2 T. - cocoa
1 - egg
3 T. - milk
3 T. - oil
1 - splash of vanilla
3 T. - chocolate chips (Optional)
Add dry ingredients to the mug; mix well with a fork. Add egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in milk, oil, and vanilla, and mix well. Add chips, if using.
Put mug in the microwave, and cook for three minutes at 1,000 watts. Cake will rise over the top of the mug -- do not be alarmed. When finished, carefully remove mug from microwave and allow to cool a little. Tip onto a small plate prior to serving, if desired. Yields one generous serving or two "more virtuous" servings.
We've found that chopping up two of our Milk Chocolate Mousse truffles in lieu of the chocolate chips works wonderfully - An absolute delight!
